First of all, what does this strange word mean? The term – sometimes written Kasbah or Casbah – refers to a fortified citadel, with houses and shops overlooking the narrow streets… This term has Arabic origins and commonly refers to a high-density area customized by all the inhabitants so that it becomes unique.
Get off at Settembrini/Napo Torriani/Lazzaretto stop and – if it is time to have lunch and you like discovering new flavours from other countries – seize the opportunity to stop at Just India in Via Benedetto Marcello, 34 (closed on Saturdays because of the market!). Then, if you may want a dessert or it is time for a snack, just try Gelato Giusto in Via San Gregorio, 17… You can’t say no to an ice cream, not even in winter! Nerby, in Via Tadino, 17 at Vinile, you can relax while having a nibble and listening to great music, surrounded by CDs and objects from the 60s to the 90s.
The place to be for collectors and the ideal space to discover the music your parents used to listen to! If you would like to have a look at all these vintage objects as well and your parents want to share with you a bit more of their passions go to BloodBuster in Via P. Castaldi, 21 – only 6 minutes on foot far from here. You will find unobtainable old movies and CDs, both new and second-hand, at a great price!
